Dubniczay Palace /In our Reading Lamp series the literary work itself is in focus. This is a curiosity in itself, as the programmes are characterised by as little dialogue and discussion as possible. The invited author is in contact with the audience in the sense that his or her work, or details of his or her work, are read by the author himself or herself. In this literary event the work itself can have a direct impact on the audience.

Moderator: László Kilián editor

"The question is whether talented people make the world a better place. It depends on what they are talented at. I call positive talent only talent. There is a talented actor but no talented murderer, there is a talented pianist but no talented bomber pilot. Take it as I said."
